Eastern Oregon University’s third annual Celebrate, Educate and Appreciate Diversity conference is taking place Feb. 8.
Registrations are being accepted through Monday. Attendance is free for university students and staff, and $25 for community members. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
Participants may also receive a certificate reflecting five hours of diversity training.
Sessions begin at 8:30 a.m. and wrap up at 2:30 p.m. with all workshops and presentations held in Badgley Hall on campus.
Structured much like a professional conference, CEAD is intended to help students gain skills that will enable them to develop as leaders and to
make connections with their peers.
EOU sophomore Julie Gulliford will present a workshop titled “Inclusion at its Greatest,” focusing on how to include others regardless of personality, appearance or other characteristics individuals may have.
Donald Easton-Brooks, EOU’s new dean of business and education, is the featured speaker.
With more than 10 years of experience in higher education administration, Easton-Brooks has also taught courses in cultural relevancy in education, educational polices and early childhood special education.
